Since 1956, the month of May has been celebrated as National Bike Month! With the weather getting warmer and days getting longer, we are feeling inspired to explore the beautiful East Bay by bike. Join the greater community to celebrate National Bike Month by ditching your car and biking to work tomorrow, May 9, for Bike to Work Day put on by Bike East Bay!
In need of a tune up before you start exploring by bike? Our Bike Shop helps keep your ride on the road — whether it’s in a Bicycle Mechanic Workshop, during our regular Bike Fix-A-Thons, or at Wednesday open shop hours. At The Crucible, you can fix up your pedal bike you use for everyday transportation, create an art bike, or customize a hot rod. We also have a robust Youth Bike Program, with youth classes in Frame Alteration, Skateboard Building, and Gravity Cars to our weekly Earn-A-Bike program.
We asked our volunteers, faculty, and staff where their favorite places to bike are, and put together this list of our favorite bike rides in the East Bay to get your wheels moving and blood pumping. What is your favorite bike ride in the East Bay?
